We focus on nine societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
TNO forms a unique bridge between the academic world and business sector. Themes that you encountered during your Artificial Intelligence studies, such as genetic algorithms and intelligent agents, can now really be put into practice. At TNO we work in just about all areas of AI (such as multi-agent systems, swarm intelligence, machine learning, human-machine interaction, etc.). So you will have plenty of possibilities for continuing your development in your specialist field.
Thanks to this diversity of subjects and knowledge, you will also be able to work on broadening and deepening your knowledge and skills. At TNO you will combine various areas of AI: our AI specialists work on projects that bring together various AI aspects, such as multi-agent technology, human-machine interaction, optimization using smart heuristics and automated reasoning. A few examples of themes you might work on are reducing levels of burglary using big data, predicting nuisance in residential areas, a multi-agent system that brings together users and providers of heat in a dynamic and optimum manner, support for self-care, making ICT accessible to illiterate persons and modelling traveller behaviour.
When you join TNO you will immediately begin working on solutions to societal problems. You will apply AI in an open and changing world, with all the challenges this brings. And you will do this together with experts from other fields, collaborating for instance with economists, criminologists or even educational professionals.
